Backgrounder Blitz - Day #2 (Sunday)

Happy Sunday! Day 2 of the Backgrounder Blitz has been a blast!!!

The criteria for the challenge was:

Sunday April 20th – Challenge #2 (BC02) – Partial backgrounder stamping – fading or stamping part of a layer


I love using the Pearl Acrylic Paint Dabbers by Ranger in place of ink. I inked a portion of the Large Polka Dot backgrounder with the paint and stamped it on my cardstock. It acts as though I've embossed the image, but I've got that metallic look to it that I love. I highly recommend this technique.

By the way - did you see that wide grosgrain ribbon? It was my inspiration for my last two cards. Isn't it amazing?!?! I've been hoarding it. LOL! This card also uses Mona's sketch as a jumping point too. Don't you love a good challenge?

Please stop by the forums and gallery for more chat and inspiration!
